My bike is still in pieces,
My body is still banged up,
My mind is numb with booze,

Sadly I am out.

A thought for Scorpoin

Scorpoin

It has been said

"I would rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal labotomy."



Time will heal all, but the bike you have to fix.

You guys missed a good ride today. We had lots and lots of rocks, but we made it to Hunter Lake. We had to turn around and come back due to snow.

Sorry I couldn't make it. I had hoped the snow would be melted enough to get around to Boomtown. From the Lake on is the prettiest part.

There was too much snow. We lost the road a couple times and finally had to turn around. Next time.

DRZ is down for a while.

So the "bullet proof" DRZ is down again. Auto Cam Chain Tensioner and Cam Chain on order. At least it didn't totally screw anything up. Just need to get it fixed. Looks like the Sherpa is back in action again.

I think I just might be able to keep up with the Sherpa this weekend

I really need to finish the F650GS'YZ'Dakar project so I can go on some rides if you ever do anything that it can handle.

All I have left to do is:
Install the new Elka shock
Remove the ABS pump, install rear brake line and bleed the brakes
Rewire the speedo sans ABS removal
Lengthen the side stand to Dakar length

My home-garage mechanic skills are improving... :-D

Then there is some optional stuff.

I'm not exactly sure where I'm riding but I know I will be out doing something, so I'm open to suggestions. Frenchmans could be fun, but I hate riding on pavement and the last time I went out that way it was a whole lot of non-dirt riding. Know any interesting routes?

I'm also interested in starting a bit earlier to battle the coming heat, like say starting at 9am instead. I'll watch the forums and see what pops up and txt you guys for final confirmation on Friday.

As always, any and all are welcome.
